    I went with oem from a dealership. They were about that same price. I remember it costing ~150 for all 5.

    I agree with this as well. I left Glamis in my GMC one year and my front 35” tire was slowly going flat... Figured it out when I stopped for fuel. Crazy thing is I was doing 70-80 and didn’t feel it.. The technology is there now, so I plan to take advantage of it.... rather have a heads up than ruin or blow a tire on the freeway.

    Looking around trying to find OEM coming in at about $70 a piece . That's about as much as 6th wheel. I still have my factory take offs and the wheels on the jeep now. Does anybody know if I can just break the bead and push the tire down enough to remove the sensor? The ones I posted above are metal and I don't think I want those. Found the same brand in rubber for $37 each. But if I can pull the OEM out of my take offs would save me $180.

    They are $1700 wheels and you’re trying to save $30?

    O’Reillys has 14 different options with $20 off purchase of $100 or more.

    Not sure where you get the "trying to save $30" part. This why I asked the question in the first place is to get different options. And if I can save a buck why not.Thanks for the help. And your condescending remarks keep on coming.

    So did you buy new sensors? I just ordered the same xd wheels and I want the best solution for the TPMS.

    I used OBD JScan to set my sensors to 25 psi... with it I can easily set the psi to whatever I want.

    I bought 5 off amazon for 80 bucks . They did take a few weeks to come in . Installed with the new tires . Unfortunately only 3 out of the 4 read correctly . The 4th wouldn’t read until I took it to a shop and they reprogrammed the Jeep sensors .

    I ended up finding a good price on TMPS.com . I think $25 or $30 apiece. Ended up breaking one during install had to pay the $65 for a replacement at Autozone.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
